East Kilbride Girls 2-3 Stenhousemuir FC Ladies
Our Ladies opened the 2016 SWFL2 season with a win at East Kilbride Girls.
Despite starting the better of the 2 teams, it was East Kilbride Girls who scored first. Shortly after, East Kilbride Girls doubled their lead from a corner. Marni Russell got one back for the visitors direct from a free kick with only minutes remaining in the first half.
We equalised after 61 minutes when Marni Russell scored her second of the match, again directly from a free kick. The Ladies continued to push for a winner and had two excellent chances to do so before Debbie Simpson eventually scored the winner late on.
